Stylist/Blogger Alyanna Martinez gave birth to Baby Adalynn Riley last Friday, January 19, through "unmedicated water birthing."

Alyanna Martinez and husband Roy Macam welcomed their daughter Adalynn Riley last Friday, January 19.

The celebrity stylist delivered her baby through a process called "water birth," which is essentially giving birth in a tub of warm water, at the GraceFull Birthing Center in Los Angeles, California.

Early today, January 25, the 32-year-old mom shared a photo of her experience and captioned, "My All-Natural 100% Completely Unmedicated Birth Center Water Birth Baby.

Alyanna initially hoped she and her baby would share the same birthday month, but she gave birth two weeks later than her doctor's "guess date."

On Instagram, he said that his wife's labor lasted for hours.

"Seeing my wife go through the whole birthing process completely unmedicated with nothing you can do physically to help her, but wish to take her place instead was excruciating to watch.

"All I had to offer was my complete support and reassuring words, and remind her that this is what we wanted and prepared so hard for, and that we will meet our beautiful baby soon.

"This event was truly a remarkable and wonderful journey, being a part of the birth and catching my daughter with my own hands is a moment you can’t put into words, but just have to experience yourself.
